Below is a step-by-step guide for using the Our Kirkland to submit capital improvement and neighborhood safety ideas. In Our Kirkland, you will zoom in on the location of your suggested project, categorize the project, describe it, and submit it. If you have multiple project ideas at various locations, please submit each idea separately. This will help ensure your ideas receive full consideration. Thank you for your suggestions. Working together creates better projects and a stronger community.
Note: Please also use the Our Kirkland service request portal for requests for maintenance or repairs to capital assets (sidewalks, roadways, traffic signals).
Open Our Kirkland. Then click the blue "Request for Service" button.
In Our Kirkland, click the location on the map where your project idea is located. Then click next to tell us about your project idea.
In Our Kirkland, select the type of project from the drop down list, and detail your suggestion in the comment box. This is also where you can upload photos or files.
If you would like to submit anonymously, this step is not required and you will not receive a reply from the City.
For more information, visit the Neighborhood Safety Program website. That program awards up to $50,000 for project ideas that improve neighborhood safety. These suggestions can also become candidates for inclusion in the Citywide Capital Improvement Program.
The City prepares a six year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) which plans for the improvements and maintenance of the City's water, sewer, and surface water utilities and transportation systems including streets, sidewalks, and intersections. The CIP document specifies project details, estimated costs, funding sources and timelines. Projects are prioritized based upon the CIP prioritization process and available funding. The City Council reviews, updates, and adopts the CIP every two years.
You can see all the projects currently in planning, design, or construction on the CIP Interactive Map (new map coming soon!).
As a resident, business, or visitor of Kirkland, you may have a question about a particular current CIP project. Check out www.kirklandwa.gov/capitalprojects for current construction projects.
